Has learning about text types lost some of its
lustre for your students; particularly boys?
Does Studies of Society, HSIE, or History need
a fillip to energise students’ learning in your
classroom? Could your Bible/Scripture/Studies
of Religion program do with more vibrancy and
relevance? And what about a little detective
work, some historical research, a mapping
assignment or a variation on some of these?
Perhaps the reading of a boy’s diary may
become a spring-board for any one of a number
of interesting learning activities.
